London 2018 MoonWalk Event

Walk the Walk is the UK’s largest grant-making breast cancer charity. They organise the famous MoonWalk overnight power walking challenges and are immensely proud to have raised over £121m, which has been granted to research into breast cancer and to improve the lives of people living with cancer now.

Join their 2,000 strong team of incredible volunteers at The MoonWalk London on 12th or 13th May to have fun and help to raise millions of pounds whilst doing so!

Saturday Evening Crew: Join in the party atmosphere at MoonWalk City on Saturday 12th May where things are just getting started…a busy period when our Walkers & Volunteers arrive en masse!!
